eXact

For Print & Packaging

The new eXact combines industry-leading functionality with an easy-to-use interface to deliver the best solution yet for controlling, managing, and communicating color across the entire color workflow.

Setting the Standard for Color Management

The X-Rite eXact handheld spectrophotometer takes color measurement and management to the next level. It is a scalable platform that can be field upgraded as needs change, from a simple densitometer to a highly advanced spectral measurement instrument. eXact enables printers and packaging converters to truly understand, control, manage, and communicate color through all facets of production , avoiding unwanted reprint and rework.

Benefits:

  • Best in Spot Color Support
    Fully integrated Pantone spectral data, support of the PantoneLIVE color digital workflow, and ink key adjustment recommendations for spot colors and CMYK make eXact best-in-class for handling spot colors.
  • Accurate and Consistent
    The combination of the advanced spectral engine and integrated white calibration ensures the highest accuracy and consistency with other instruments – all the time. When used with NetProfiler, customers can ensure accuracy and consistency across multiple measurement devices within a single facility or across geographies.
  • Configurable
    eXact allows the user to easily configure and control the instrument to the specific standards of a selected job.
  • Efficient
    eXact is built to bring efficiency to your operation with its ability to do simultaneous polarized and  unpolarized measurements (M0, M2 and M3).
  • Expandable
    With a comprehensive portfolio of products, the eXact family integrates with many of X-Rite solutions to ensure color consistency.
By deploying X-Rite eXact spectrophotometers, print and packaging operations can significantly reduce makeready times, improve quality, reduce substrate and ink waste and enjoy a more efficient workforce. It is the first instrument in the marketplace to combine unique hardware and software into a single integrated, scalable solution that helps operations get color right the first time - every time.
